I asked a similar question a while back, it seemed a lot of people in Alberta seemed to be selling systems a lot. I was advised that it may have someting to do with the oil projects and related industries, my personal belief is that it is die hard Flames and Oiler fans jumping off tall buildings.:lol::mrgreen:

No you're not the only one here from Ottawa - I'm not sure how many of us there are, though :question:

I'm in the Vanier/Lindenlea area, where are you located?
I'm a recent Trans-Canada transplant, myself, only been here since August last year.

This board is a great resource for info, advice and help - I just wouldn't consider it my 1st resource for finding anything on the Classifieds ... :lol:

Hello Ottawa Folks,
I am just starting up my tank, buying a cheap used biocube that needs lots of cleaning and work on it. Hoping to get that done soon. Anyone have some cheat i can have?

I just moved to Ottawa from London in January. I'm in Vanier. I just set my 20L back up since almost everything died in the move and I had to re-cycle my rock. I'm currently working on a 75 gallon build too. I'm so broke! lol

Looking forward to meeting some Ottawa reefers in the future!

Welcome to Ottawa & to the neighbourhood - I'm just on the other side of Beechwood from you!
Too bad about the die-off. I've had that happen in a move, too :sad:
Let me know if you need a hand with the 75gal build.

Thanks for the welcome, Vic. We must be almost neighbours. I'm on Montreal myself.

The move didn't go according to plan and someone put my rock bucket in the back of the truck, where it sat overnight. Just one of the blunders lol.

I see you have a 75 too. Do you have a build/tank thread with the details? I wouldn't mind comparing notes. Also, how do you find the reef shops in Ottawa? I've been to Aqua Valley and he has some really nice stuff there. Picked up an acan frag yesterday.

Hi Graeme,

Ouch! How long was the rock in the truck & what was the outside temp?

When I set up my tank a year ago, the rock had been in plastic garbage bags for four (4) months without water but with some newspaper. it did need to be cured, but surprisingly, it didn't kill everything (almost tough!).

The stores in town vary and each seems to have their niche - but I agree Az has usually got good stock and v. good prices. His frag tanks are almost complete so he'll have tons of frags pretty soon, I'm sure!

I do have a build thread, but the links to it (its on OVAS' site) seem to be broken?!?! I'll have to work on that... Right now I'm trying to get my sump up and running in a city that has absolutely no stock on plumbing fittings :twised:

The rock was outside overnight, when it went down to -9 (I checked). The gravel bed from my planted setup froze solid :P. How long did your rock take to cycle/cure once you set everything up?

I was back at Aqua Valley last Saturday and he had a ton of mouth-watering frags there. That was the first time I'd seen LEDs in person (not counting the Marineland ones) and man do they make the colours pop. I'm much more excited now to get my own built.

Let me know if you discover anything in your plumbing search. I am going to be planning mine in the coming months (or weeks, depending) and will need some things. Also, any idea where to get something like a 55 gallon bin in Ottawa?

Hi all fellow people from Ottawa. I live just on the boarder in Russell. I hope it's okay to mention another forum here, if you are just moving here or may not know, our local forum is ovas.ca. I will say can reef is a more active forum but ovas is what we have locally especial for classifieds.

I'm in Ottawa, just posted in another thread about it actually.

Canadian reefers are abundant enough, but geographically we are all over the damn place.

There is a guy in Alymer just across the border in Quebec that always has frags and they look great.

I did, what a sweet deal! Up and running like a charm. Tank had been running for a few years so was like doing a small water change. Have added a couple of things since this pic.
